SkinPen® is a medical grade, state-of-the-art micro needling device designed to reverse the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars on the face and body. SkinPen® allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair procedure by creating thousands of precise micro-injuries in the dermis, automatically triggering new collagen synthesis without causing scar tissue formation.
The variable depth (.25mm to 2.5mm) of SkinPen® and the cordless design provide significant versatility in administering it to different areas of the body, including the face, neck, chest, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back. The actual procedure typically takes 30 minutes depending on the size and number of areas treated and the severity of damage on the skin and results in little to no downtime for the patient.
The SkinPen® Advantage
Your Skin Can Benefit From SkinPen®. Here’s how:
Micro needling has been safely used in a wide variety of patients and skin types. (1-3). Based on your goals you have a lot to consider when deciding which procedures are right for you. Among those considerations is understanding your unique skin type. The more you know, the more SkinPen® stands out as the informed aesthetic choice. When it comes to the science, your skin type, and recovery time, the SkinPen® advantage is clear. SkinPen®’s state-of-the-art, technology is designed to stimulate your skin.
When Skinfuse® products are used post micro needling, results are maximized as your body is given the vitamins and minerals it needs to encourage healthy skin.
SkinPen® Science Respects All Skin Types, And Cares For Your Epidermis.
Recovery time from a SkinPen® process is less than a laser process. Also, Skinfuse® post-process protocol offers the ability to continue the skin rejuvenation procedure.
The Diverse SkinPen® Patient Profile Includes Every Skin Type In The FST.
For doctors, scientists, and clinicians, the Fitzpatrick Skin Type (FST) is the most common scale/method used to assess the categories of skin types with regards to sunburn risk and skin cancer risk (3). Understanding your own skin type in this spectrum helps refine your choices in aesthetic treatments.
The scale uses a person’s phenotype (physical traits they exhibit) as well as how their skin reacts to sun experience to estimate their overall skin type. This is done to assist the clinician in determining how to best care for the patient given how others with similar skin types have fared with different treatments and medications.
An example of this is how physicians assess which patients are suitable candidates for fractional laser treatments. Since lasers can leave areas of hyperpigmentation (darker areas of skin) in patients with darker skin types, clinicians often do not recommend lasers for these patients, or even those with lighter skin types who have allowed their skin to tan. The diverse SkinPen® patient profile includes every skin type, making it a breakthrough for patients susceptible to hyperpigmentation.
While the FST scale is not perfect in its inclusion of every skin type (4) it does capture the overall population in regards to broad descriptions of skin types and the overall concerns when approaching patients with those skin types.
Your Gorgeous Skin Awaits
The distinctive, blue Bellus Medical SkinPen® works to diminish the signs of aging. Other treatments such as laser resurfacing have long recovery periods and can cause hyperpigmentation in some skin types.
